This sepia toned photograph carte de visite is of Edward Everett, an American politician, Unitarian pastor, educator, diplomat, and orator from Massachusetts who is often remembered as the featured orator at the dedication ceremony of the Gettysburg National Cemetery in 1863, where he spoke for over two hours—immediately before President Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous two-minute Gettysburg Address. Everett is wearing a dark suit and tie with a white shirt. The photograph was found tipped into pages 196-197 of volume eight of Abraham Lincoln : A History by John G. Nicolay and John Hay.
